and that runner should start to sprint soon as america begins to reap the rewards of its domestic energy boom. we're extracting record amounts of oil and gas from shale through fracking and other technologies. pushing prices for natural gas which is used in part to generate electricity down. that helps utilities and heavy industry compete. creating more jobs for americans, all of these things put together are sending my runner, the u.s. economy, dashing ever faster down that road toward an economic renaissance. one that offers real prosperity. real jobs for years to come. but running fast on this road requires something else -- an investment in infrastructure. and that's a subject of discussion i really had with harvard professor ken rogoff, "wall street journal" editorial righter. and i started off by asking how can you convince lawmakers that infrastructure money is well spent and how can you insure that the money is in fact well spent? >> i think you have to have firm regulatory oversight. it's not something you can just spend the money and walk away from. but there are the electricity grid, w

speech at the democratic national convention injected energy and enthusiasm into the voters. >> herman cain was the leading republican contender. however, he was also the worst politician, but i'll get to that later. >> i had a long shot in naming chris christie because he firmed up his base in a democratic state. and i think at a time when the republicans now are seeing a resurgence among their moderates. i think in the long run he may prove to be the big winner of the year. >> these are all very interesting choices but they are all domestic. the best politician of 2012 was german chancellor angela merkle. she had to walk a tightrope between her german voters who do not favor bailing out europe and the european union. best politician, angela. you got it? you can write that down. pat, put it in your column. worst politician. >> susan rice. she was fed these phony talking points by the cia. she went on a defensive. and president obama left her, john, twisting slowly, slowly in the wind. she's gone. >> she'll still be our u.n. ambassador, though, pat. i give worst politician to mitt romn
to the energy legislation where byrd worked tirelessly on it to get it done without a filibuster. he had the sense that the senate leader should have a special relationship with the president and that is the way the system was supposed to work. of course, the most important in for the senate leader is to make the senate work. byrd knew the senate rules better than any person that ever lived. he lived in dealing with the notion of the fear of a paralyzed senate. he wanted to think that the rules worked, but he knew that in fact jim allen of alabama had cracked the code. he had figured out how to have this filibuster so the senate could be tied up in paralyzed. robert byrd like to think you have to be an expert to do this , but it turned out you do not need to be an expert at all. a couple of senators did not know the rules and they tied the senate up. byrd struggled with the notion of how to keep the unique character of the senate without having a paralyzed? in that regard, he championed rules change. he got some done in 1979. he knew that the senate rules do not work. if they were not fi
believe that human beings have what i call discretionary energy that they can give you or not. and i don't think that they will give it to you if they don't feel that they're treated with dignity and respect every day. i'm treated with dignity and respect. a down payment on that is nobody ever gets hurt here is because we care about our own commitment to our safety, and we care about the people we work with. it swells up to into you do, it gives you a sense of pride with the organization you're involved with. >> then thyou ask them for extr productivity. >> you don't have to ask them. they turn it loose. we went from 1.86 per 100 per year to cause them to miss a work day. we got to 0.13. to give you a reference point, the number in health medical care institutions in the united states is five, right? >> and now described what happened to alcoa commercially, financially under your term. >> well, we -- i think we improved market capitalization of the company 900% while i was there. the market company valued at $4 billion to $28 billion in 13 years. >> and you attribute that to -- the start
're moving to where they can thrive. and this benefits every american. we look at energy development and we talk about that at the national level of how it can create prosperity for our country if we open it up. we don't have to guess at whether or not it works. i mean, we can look at north dakota, you can look at pennsylvania. states that have gone around the federal rules and figured out how to develop their own energy are creating jobs and tax revenue to their governments. they were able to lower their taxes, use the revenue to improve everything about their states. and here we make it political and partisan on whether or not our country can develop more and more energy. but at the state level it's just about what works. and all we have to do is look at what works. this is not rocket science. i came to washington as a novice in politics, believing in the power of ideas, seeing how ideas can revolutionize different industries, can create new products and services meeting the needs of customers everywhere. and that's what i hoped we could do here in washington. maybe naively i went to work
revolution and energy gas revolution and unemployment remains persistently high. >> first, we have to focus on that. unemployment being this high is not just an economic problem, it's a social problem. we have to fight it. policymakers need to do even more to make sure that the ban is there in the economy. >> what does that mean? >> to me that would be a more sensible resolution of the budget deal so that we have less austerity today, but a glide path toward much more austerity in the future. >> would you be in favor of a stimulus today? >> i think it depends on what you mean by a stimulus and in what form. we have to talk about the short-term economy. you asked about how the u.s. looks. to me, if you looked around the world and said you can only pick one country's opportunities and problems to own, what would you want? unquestionably for me, it is the united states. >> would you agree with that? >> think about energy, tech, innovation potential, this country's demographics, this is the country i would want to be. >> i completely agree with everything that glenn said. in fact, i'm surprised
